Source: EU Report for pension adequacy
An additional 2 Trillion Euro per year need to be saved in the EU to avoid widespread poverty. This is an issue that affects everyone, yet remains largely unadressed.
When Horizon65, Nicolas Overloop, investigated this issue, he determined that while most people were doing something against this, they weren’t saving enough.
What did he find out?
Those who were investing enough were only doing so because they had their situation analysed by a financial advisor.
This led Nicolas to team up with Seamus, an accredited financial advisor.
Together they spent countless hours to simplify typical financial advice process by combining Nicolas’s technical expertise with Seamus’s financial expertise. As a result, Horizon65 was created.
Our method is to democratise access to financial knowledge.
To achieve this goal, they developed a user-friendly tool which allows the user to become their own financial advisor. With the help of technology, the product aims to make expertise accessible, affordable and useful on a consistent basis – especially for those, who view dealing with finances as a chore.
Founder & CEO
Nicolas is an experienced fintech entrepreneur who previously founded NoviCap, Spain’s largest Fintech lender with over 1.3 Billion Euro of granted loans.

The science of long-term forecasting does not work when dealing with individual investments such as shares and crypto.
By definition such investments are highly concentrated and are overly exposed to risks that could wipe out the value of that investment such as fraud (think Wirecard), cyber security risk (think Equifax), mismanagement (think Enron), market risks or even personal risks (what happens to Tesla if Elon Musk dies?).
Our clients want financial security and individual investments do not provide enough safety.
The value of individual investments over a long time is also impossible to predict.
